Sponsor Chris Harper in London Marathon this weekend
Chris Harper, who plays Nathan Curtis, is running to raise funds for the NSPCC.
Chris says: "Researching my role in Coronation Street opened my eyes to the awful suffering of victims of Child Sexual Exploitation. The National Crime Agency and a number of charities (including the NSPCC) are doing excellent work to combat CSE, fighting to identify and care for its victims. But more needs to be done.
"So I'm going to do the marathon and your hard earned readies will be the wind beneath my wings.
Your money goes to an excellent cause, combatting the manipulation and maltreatment which affects far more of our children and young people than we imagined. Children and young people from across all classes, races and religions across the U.K. and beyond are affected. The promotion of online and offline safety is important, as is the difficult job of identifying, rescuing and then treating the victims who often sustain long lasting physical and mental injuries.
"Please help the teams taking on CSE - and support the NSPCC in work they do in helping vulnerable children and teenagers. And help me carry on pounding the pavement in my long hours training.
"Thanks for your donation, please spread the word, Chris"
